Yabloko Outlines Agenda for 1998

The Yabloko party has listed "the denial of trust in the government" and "if possible, the initiation of a no-confidence procedure in parliament" among its aims for the coming year in a resolution approved by Yabloko's 6th congress.

The final text of the resolution, approved when the congress met outside Moscow on Saturday and Sunday, will be published after it is edited by the bureau of Yabloko's Central Council.

The reformist party intends to "formulate realistic economic and political alternatives to the government's policy." At the same time, it considers it "possible to support individual, reasonable measures proposed by the government."

Yabloko believes that the Russian economy is in a state of lengthy stagnation and that the statement that economic growth is beginning in Russia is a myth, the document says.

The participants in the congress stated that "Russia is quickly evolving into a corporate, oligarchic and semi-criminal state, and is going further and further from the democratic principles of organized authority."
